$7.99 $7.19

A clever twist on a classic fairy tale, this story stars a whip-smart girl instead of traditionally lazy, not-so-bright Jack. It stays pretty true to the original, but has a surprising ending.

Fee, Fi, Fo, Fum’un,
I smell the blood of an Englishwoman.
Be she alive or be she dead,
I’ll grind her bones to make my bread.

Kate and the Beanstalk is a Great Children’s Book.  Mary Pope Osborne’s funny, magical retelling of the favorite tale and Giselle Potter’s enchanting illustrations feature a new and inspiring heroine named Kate for today’s audience. Readers will cheer on this resourceful, gutsy girl as she outsmarts the famously greedy giant. ISBN 9780689825507.

“The dizzying perspectives seen from the beanstalk are exaggerated by text that becomes bigger and bolder with Kate’s ascent and descent….One of the most lasting and popular of all fairytales, this retelling will make a popular addition to all collections.”  School Library Journal

“Fee, fi, fo — fun!” Booklist

Mary Pope Osborne, author of Kate and the BeanstalkMary Pope Potter, “I spent nearly every waking hour after school there, either acting or working backstage. When I stepped from the sunny street into that musty-smelling, dark little theater, all things seemed possible.I went on to study drama at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. In my junior year, I discovered an even greater realm of adventure and changing scenery: the world of mythology and comparative religion. So I became a religion major and learned as much as I could about other cultures. Writing is a miracle. You can travel anywhere in the world, to any time and any place — and still be home in time to have dinner.”

giselle pottergif Kate and the BeanstalkGiselle Potter, “My parents and grandparents are all artists so it’s not surprising that I became one too. My drawings and illustrated journals from the years when I travelled with my parents puppet theater, The Mystic Paper Beasts, inspire me a lot now. My New Yorker Illustrations inspired a lucky chain of work with many magazines and children’s books.
